About Cockenzie After School Club

Cockenzie After School Club is based in its own apex off the Primary School within the bustling seaside town of Cockenzie.  We offer Breakfast club, Afterschool club and Holiday club during February, April, Summer and October.

ELOSCN’S PRIDE values are used in all our settings, the children, staff and all stakeholders are aware of our Values and the children enjoy praising one another when they receive one of our PRIDE stickers.

P  –  Protect themselves and each other

R  –  Respect each other, staff and children

I  –  Inspire, look after and encourage each other

D  –  Develop by giving confidence, self-belief, respect, as you can see the PRIDE in practice rolls in to each other giving every child a “Magical Experience”

E  –  Experience which we endeavour to provide a magical experience every day

Breakfast and Afterschool Club has a wide age range and varies from P1 up to S1, however this does not stop the children interacting well through play evoking a sense of responsibility from the older ones who like to “keep an eye” on their younger friends.  Breakfast Club offers a range of cereals, fruit and toast and all children who eat use our tooth brushing facility.  The staff then walk the children around to their area for the bell ringing to start their day.  The primary school itself offers out of school activities which some of our children like to attend.  These vary from rugby, enjoyaball, drama and street dance.  The Afterschool Club has its very own room with all facilities on site and the club offers a warm friendly feel, providing a fun environment for the children to be part of.  We have access to the school gym hall and assembly hall for parties.

Our children have a wide range of snack and activities that they choose, even though it is all about the choice of the child, we provide an adult led activity every day as an additional option.  Some of the outdoor and indoor activities range from the following:  Park, playground trim trail, climbing trees, zombie tig, Hama beads, drawing, Lego, colouring in and many, many more.  After snack we have circle time, this gives the children the opportunity to share “their news” and choose what they would like to do for that day.

As you can imagine, the most popular choice is to get outside to the park or the playing field.  We appreciate that some children want to stay in and chill, and we provide that extra space with big comfy couches that the children have access to.   Cockenzie After School Club strives to provide that “Magical Experience” that all our children deserve and keeping our PRIDE values at the front of all choice we can deliver this.
